Adventure’s in Sight Seeing

All set up at Verde Valley Thousand Trails in site C 43... This is what we have just a few steps away from our camp site. I great little waterfall which is just a small stream off the Verde River. It’s very nice and quiet here.

Our first day out sight seeing we drove to Sedona then we went to Old Town  Cottonwood, along the way we got some great pictures of the colorful mountains.

Old Town Cottonwood was very small and most of the shops were closed. But still interesting.

Then it was off to Jerome… and some lunch at the Haunted Hamburger.

The restaurant was a small little house that had been converted from a boarding house for miners. We ordered the Haunted Burger and it was pretty good. We didn’t get to see anything ghostly, dangit… I was very disappointed of course.

While walking the town I got some really interesting pictures. The Post Office.

The whole town of Jerome seems to have been a Hot Bed for the ladies of the evening for these miners. Just Sayin' by everything I'm seeing and reading...

The ride up the side of that steep mountain was well worth the drive. At times it seemed as if we were headed straight up. Jerome is a really neat town. If your ever in the area it’s a must to visit. Just DO NOT take your rig!!! the roads are extremely narrow and there are many, many dangerous curves to tackle.

Well that’s all for today kids until next time, Happy Trails and Safe Travels.
